Joshua Kelley (foot) inactive for Week 14

Chargers' RB Joshua Kelley (foot) is inactive and will not play in Sunday's Week 14 contest against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley was dealing with a foot issue throughout the week and was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Look for Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson and Kalen Ballage to lead the Chargers' backfield Week 14. Kelley is mainly a stash in dynasty leagues only.

Joshua Kelley (foot) doesn't practice Wednesday

Chargers RB Joshua Kelley (foot) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley wasn't used at all in Week 13 against the Patriots. He isn't on the fantasy radar to close out the 2020 season, but we'll continue monitoring his injury throughout the week.

Joshua Kelley scores TD in loss to Bills

Los Angeles Chargers RB Joshua Kelley rushed seven times for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley had a 33-yard rush that accounted for most of his yardage on Sunday and received a goalline carry at the 1-yard line to score the second touchdown of his rookie season. He had fallen out of favor in the Chargers backfield, but it appears he may have earned the goalline back job should Kalen Ballage continue to miss time. Kelley remains a hold in dynasty formats but can't be trusted as anything more than a TD-dependent flier in redraft leagues with Austin Ekelker back in the lineup.

Joshua Kelley not involved in offense in Week 11

Chargers RB Joshua Kelley caught two passes for four yards and rushed four times for -2 yards in the Chargers' Week 11 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley's role in the offense continues to take a nosedive as he's now played behind Kalen Ballage in three straight games. Fantasy managers can leave him on waivers since he's no longer a part of the Chargers' game plan heading into Week 12.

Joshua Kelley takes backseat to Kalen Ballage in Week 10

Chargers RB Joshua Kelley rushed seven times for 21 yards in the Chargers' Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley has fallen out of favor in the Chargers backfield as he's now ceded carries to Kalen Ballage in the past two games. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues can safely drop Kelley since he's no longer atop the depth chart. Fellow Chargers RB Austin Ekeler is also on the verge of returning to the rotation, capping Kelley's fantasy upside for the remainder of the season.
